coming in the side door

Spam comments on this blog have always been concentrated on a few old posts, so I tried disabling comments on some that look unlikely to ever attract legitimate comments.

all the world’s a wiki

I toy with the thought of converting this here website to MediaWiki (which my host supports), as I am more efficient at editing there than at writing raw HTML in vi.

The wiki’s first articles would be:

  • Two-dimensional design
    • Hyperbolic tilings
    • Arrangements of the color gamut in the plane
    • Curve-fitting
  • Three-dimensional design
    • Ray-tracing
    • Solid printing
  • Posthuman speculation

The blog “Degrees of Freedom”, which had been inactive for some time when last I looked at it, has vanished. James, do you still visit here?

that didn’t take long

Someone has snapped up my old unwanted domain to start a blog in (i think) Swedish.

link cautiously

Jonas discovered that, if you write a comment here with three links, you’ll be taken to a 403 page without explanation. I haven’t found the configuration setting that does this.

don’t trust the clock

I just noticed that, in the time shown for posts and comments, the month-number appears in place of the minutes. From the format settings it seems to be a WordPress bug. It’s not the host or PHP, because in WordPress admin pages the time is correct.
